Greek Original:

Same entry in ps.-Zonaras.
[1] The headword is present middle/passive infinitive of the rare verb e)cixwri/zw. Presumably, in the light of the second glossing phrase, it is to be understood as middle rather than passive; and presumably too it is extracted from the quotation given, where it must bear a different meaning than the only one registered by LSJ s.v. ('cleanse from humors'). For ichor and its several applications, see generally iota 794, alpha 4711.
[2] From Herodian, Symposium; quoted by the grammarian Orion [Author, Myth] (tau151.17). See also tau 122, tau 124. For garum, see gamma 66.
